A BRIEF PORTRAIT OF THE FMEL

The Fondation Maisons pour Etudiants Lausanne (FMEL) is a non-profit Swiss public interest organisation. Its mission is to design, build and manage buildings especially to house students of the University of Lausanne, (UNIL), the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL), and specialist schools located in the canton of Vaud that are part of the university of applied sciences and arts (HES-VD) or have a convention agreement.

Established in 1961 by the City of Lausanne, the Canton of Vaud and the University of Lausanne to meet the growing need for student accommodation, the foundation now has the capacity to house no fewer than 3,500 students in shared flats, single rooms and studios at 14 sites, mainly in the greater Lausanne area. The latest construction at the time of writing is the emblematic Vortex building, inaugurated in January 2020, which temporarily housed the 1,800 athletes taking part in the 2020 Winter Youth Olympic Games in Lausanne and those accompanying them under one roof. This unique spiral-shaped building can accommodate a thousand students and academic guests on the UNIL campus. It’s a perfect reflection of the foundation’s dynamism and its desire to provide a quality tenant experience at rents that are as affordable as possible.

By 2026 the FMEL will be increasing its capacity further via the Health Campus project. The foundation will build a complex of 500 rooms and studios in the Côtes de la Bourdonnette area for students of the Haute Ecole de santé vaudoise (HESAV), as well as stepping up efforts to promote access to student accommodation.

The Fondation Maisons pour Etudiants Lausanne is governed by a foundation board comprising representatives of the Canton of Vaud, the City of Lausanne, the management of the University of Lausanne and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, as well as three students enrolled at UNIL, EPFL or a school of the university of applied sciences and arts and whose role is to represent the interests of FMEL tenants. Representatives of FAE AND AGEPOLY, the UNIL and EPFL student associations, sit on the board as invited members without voting rights. Among other things, the involvement of student tenants and representatives of the associations contributes to the vitality of debate and democratic legitimacy of the board.
